Today’s interactive Google Doodle celebrates one of the world’s most popular dishes - pizza. On this day in 2007, the culinary art of Neapolitan “Pizzaiuolo” was inscribed on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
The pizza puzzle game on Google Doodle features a few of the most popular pizza toppings from across the world and challenges people to slice it, based on the type of pizza ordered. The more accurate the order, the more stars one earns.
The art of the Neapolitan ‘Pizzaiuolo’ is a culinary practice comprising four different phases relating to the preparation of the dough and its baking in a wood-fired oven, involving a rotatory movement by the baker.
The element originates in southwestern Italian city of Naples, the capital of the Campania Region, where about 3,000 Pizzaiuoli now live and perform.
